Eagles Offense All-22 Film Review: Takeaways from the win over the Packers

Eagles Offense All-22 Film Review: Takeaways from the win over the Packers

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports This was one of the best offensive line performances I have ever seen. There’s definitely more to talk about in the Eagles running game (as opposed to the passing attack) this week so this will be the focus of this one. It turns out the offense wasn’t figured out after last week, who knew? Offense The EPA per-play numbers are exceptional which is no surprise. The rush number is about as good as it gets and there was no prominent area of weakness. This was an elite performance from the Eagles' offense. Passing Game I...

Eagles have reason to believe Reed Blankenship can build on his strong debut

Eagles-Giants game in Week 14 will NOT be flexed to Sunday Night Football

Photo by Elsa/ There was some thought that the start time might be moved. The Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants will NOT be meeting on Sunday Night Football in Week 14.

It was looking like a no-brainer for the NFL to move Kansas City Chiefs versus Denver Broncos out of the spotlight due to the latter team being bad and, quite frankly, absolutely unwatchable. But instead of featuring...
